I was thrilled when I was asked to review GRATiAE products.
I first took a peek at their website. I like to know as much as possible about a company prior to trying a new beauty item as my skin is very sensitive. I have not been able to use most cleansers and moisturizers since my early 20`s. I am always careful when trying a new brand and a little weary for this very reason.
Their tag line is GRATiAE organic beauty by nature. Gratiae premium skin-care takes the minerals from the water and combines them with Sea of Galilee in Israel native flora and essential oils.
GRATiAE is certified organic, uses sustainable, organic, and natural materials in their product. GRATiAE products are recyclable and sold in an eco-friendly bag.
When the products arrived I was pleased to see the minimal packaging. No outer plastic wrapping to deal with. When I opened the box my girls actually Ooooh and Aaaaahed. The containers are so pretty.
I was sent four products to try:
- GRATiAE Body Butter – Passion fruit & Ginger
- GRATiAE Exfoliating Body Scrub – Passion fruit & Lime
- GRATiAE Lifting Moisture Cream
- GRATiAE Lifting Facial Serum
I could not wait to smell the Body Butter and Exfoliating Body Scrub. Smell is a big thing for me and products. Subtle but noticeable. My favorite scents right now happen to be both ginger and lime. I was pleased when I received these two scents unsolicited!
GRATiAE Body Butter – Passion fruit & Ginger is luxuriously thick. It applies easily and does not feel heavy or sticky after it is rubbed in. It has a light sweet smell which reminds me of Hawaii.
The true test still remained though. Would it be gentle on my easily irritated skin? The answer is “Yes!”. I waited to report this after my third usage as that is usually when my skin reacts. No reaction. I have noticed a definite softness and smoothing of my skin after only one week!
GRATiAE Exfoliating Body Scrub – Passion fruit & Lime is a fantastic way to feel silky smooth and refreshed. Pair it with the body butter for silky smooth skin.
GRATiAE Lifting Moisture Cream and Lifting Facial Serum did all it promised to do. It seemed to work after the first application. I especially noticed a difference on my forehead. Still no irritation.
Bottom line? I am in love with this product line. It will be gracing all of my future Christmas lists, Mothers Day and Birthday gift requests. I am especially interested in the Gratiae Volcanic Stone…. just in case my husband reads this.
I just wanted to let you know that today (October 11) is International Day of the Girl Child and GRATiAE is working with Because I Am A Girl to help raise funds. A portion of all online and in-store sales will be donated to this cause and you can also help by going online to donate here.
I have great news! Thanks to the GRATiAE team you can enter to win a fantastic prize pack similar to the one I was sent!
